Ellie pictures and an updated project

Ellie Ruth--4 months old and growing up so fast I can't believe it.

One of my house projects is to finish this my swatch portrait inspired by the purl bee. I started it a while back but wasn't happy with it.

I took it down, painted the hoops (except the plastic one which I need to replace), and added a couple new ones.

I can't figure out how to get them to hang flush with the wall. I think it's because our walls are textured. If I figure it out (and by "I" I mean John since he's better at things like that than I am), I think I'm going to do a bunch more and cover the entire wall. It's in our bathroom. The door on the left hand side is to our bedroom.

I'm thinking of going up and out both directions. Plus I have a few more ideas for embroidered ones I want to hang.

Well, crap, Ellie's going to be up any minute and Mary just fell asleep on my lap.
